Brigitte Beraha Short Info

"A great musician, Brigitte Beraha uses her voice like an instrument in the tradition of people like Flora Purim, Tania Maria and Esperanza Spalding. " Julian Joseph, Jazz Line-Up, BBC Radio 3

“Most musicianly singer Brigitte Beraha” performs as both ‘sideman’ and as a leader in an ever-expanding range of projects, from straight ahead jazz- singing jazz standard songs with lyrics, to more contemporary outlets- using her voice as an instrument.

Brigitte is now recognized as one of the most versatile and exciting vocalists to emerge on the UK jazz scene in the last decade. As well as performing and recording with many of the legends of the UK jazz scene, including Kenny Wheeler, Chris Laurence, Paul Clarvis, John Parricelli, Bobby Wellins and Henry Lowther she is closely involved in the work of the new generation of jazz musicians and in particular the Loop and E17 jazz collectives.

Drawing comparisons with such luminaries as Norma Winstone and Tania Maria, she has forged her own, very individual voice. With four albums to her credit, her album Babelfish was recently picked by Sebastian Scotney, founder of LondonJazz , as one of his top three albums of 2012. Her band Babelfish - a collaboration with pianist Barry green and internationally renowned Chris Laurence (bass) and Paul Clarvis (percussion) - are due to release a new album on 20th April 2015. Temporary listen to some of the tracks from the album on here!

An experienced educator, Brigitte leads jazz workshops and teaches at The Guildhall School of Music, Trinity Laban Conservatoire and the Welsh College of Music. She has performed and led workshops in the United States, France, Germany, Belgium, Switzerland, Finland, Turkey, Bahrain, Nepal and the UK.
